Canon is Thor: it does as its creator directs, it’s good, solid, thorough. It fairly closely adheres to rules and guidelines, and any subtext is usually either ignored/misunderstood (“authorial intent”), or fairly obvious.
Fanfiction is Loki: fuck your rules Canon, I DO WHAT I WANT.
the entire reason that iron man, cap and thor got movies is because marvel sold the rights to literally every character anyone wanted even a tiny bit to keep from going totally bankrupt and hulk,thor, iron man and cap were all that was left
and those are now characters that are headlining a billion dollar franchise and some of them are all over the place in the comics too
you can literally take just about any character and turn them A-list if you put money behind them and give them quality exposure, there is literally no excuse at this point why they can’t at least try a female or poc led movie
Instead of trying to write I got noodle soup and am yelling to myself about the lack of frostiron pacific rim fics. I WANT THEM BEING THE SASSIEST PILOTS AND EVERYONE HAVING TO TURN THE COMMS OFF BECAUSE THEY’RE GETTING REALLY ANNOYING WITH THE CONSTANT BICKERING AND THEN THEY HAVE EXHAUSTED, SWEATY AND RUSHED SEX AFTER KICKING A KAIJU’S ARSE WHEN THEY SHOULD PROBABLY BE SLEEPING BUT THAT’S NOT HOW THEY DO THINGS.
i MEAN OKAY LOOK i just think that they have a fascinating dynamic and that loki is in so many ways a cracked reflection of tony adn that tony is basically everything loki has the potential to be (a hero, an innovator, a genius, a loved and decent person) if he could get his shit together and they could work well together because hey snark and sexual tensio but alo understandng each other’s damage to a degree but also tony shutting down loki’s complete horseshit and telling him to get his shit together and then they fight a lot and the sex is fantastic andthey hate each other but also don’t but hate themselves for not totally hating each other and not being able to stay away and wow maybe even love??? blooming on opposites sides of the battle??? that’s so tragic and forbidden and also though COULD THERE BE THE POTENTIAL FOR REDEMPTION?? HOW WILL THIS WORK OUT??? BETRAYAL and EMOTIONS and FIGHTNG AND
So, me and Nechama were trying to figure out if there was ever an official birth order for the sons of Odin, or have we just been assuming Balder is the youngest for whatever reason - after looking we still believe that is probably the truth, he’s definitely the youngest of the Odin/Frigga sons, Vidar generally looks older, and Thor and Loki appear to be the two closest in age somewhere in the middle of the pack.
But it also made me wonder about the MCU.
In that flashback, Thor and Loki look exactly the same age as boys. Which makes me wonder, what if Odin brought Loki home right at the end of Frigga’s pregnancy and they passed them off as twins? It would make sense as to why it wasn’t questioned as to where the second baby came from and why Thor and Loki don’t appear to have any sort of age gap between them.
And that just leads to all sorts of adorable mental images, like Frigga nursing baby Thor and Loki and how her poor boobs were under constant attack cause you know Thor was a fattie and Loki probably was a biter, which then leads to painful feels with Frigga’s “Am I not your mother?” that make me want to lay down and cry.
#odin is a slut #too many baby mamas
I actually headcanon this and put it into MM back at Crystalline Alignment Chapter 2. Didn’t think of the feeding thing though *creys*
